I been thinking lately that I haven't done much for exercise. I was so good in the winter with doing some sort of program all the time, but since it got warm out I haven't done much. Sure I have been doing more stuff outside, but no real formal type exersize and it is definitely time to get into that again. So I been thinking I should start running. I hate running. But since we have a nice road to run on and I have all the equipment (runners) then it should be what I start doing and maybe I would like it.
(our orphan calf who lives with the horses)Well last night I was feeling pretty sore, my back is out somethin bad and my chiro is not in until Tuesday. And I have always had a sore knee, but whatever might as well start running, it cant be any worse right??? Well it really wasn't, I forgot the reason I hate running is not cause it hurts me, but I can't breathe. I don't know why my lungs are so weak like that, but like 30 seconds into the run I thought I was gonna collapse. But I kept pushing myself to jog for a minute then I planned to walk for a minute. All the way to the first Texas gate (about 1/2 mile). I should have know better and just walked a minute and jogged 30 seconds to start. My goal eventually is to be able to jog to the Texas gate without having to stop. I am hoping it happens before it gets too cold to jog cause in cold weather my lungs hurt even more, sometimes just breathing. I wonder if there is something wrong with them or I am just out of shape, I am leaning towards the latter.
(ponies were pretty curious as to what I was doing
running down the road in the dark, lol)I almost left too late to go cause it got pretty mosquitoey when I got in the shade and by the time I got back (about 20 mins) it was dark out. But that's OK cause I got to see the sun go down and I didn't completely die, only partly, but I plan on trying it again today, maybe a little earlier. But I was unprepared for summer to be over so fast, that was only 8:30 :((( And this morning it was 6*C when I got up, way too cold for me to venture out in, almost toque weather.
